Maria, Aaron, Ryan, and Israel

Hi! My name is Maria and I am delighted to be the Parent Educator for the Fillmore-Central ECFE program! I live on a beautiful dairy farm with my husband Aaron and our children Israel (5), Ryan (3 1/2), and Anna (under 1). We love spending time together as a family and believe that strong families are a crucial part to creating strong communitites.

Prior to ECFE, I taught music at Kingsland Schools and then served as the Worship and Children's Director at Valley Christian Center in Spring Valley. I earned a Masters of Leadership degree in 2011 and have found a love for building and leading teams. I have developed, organized and led numerous programs and events over the years including Vacation Bible School, benefit concerts and theatrical productions. I look forward to leading ECFE classes and seeing you at community events! 

I firmly believe that every person has gifts they can offer their family and community and I find great joy in helping people discover those gifts. My goal is to teach, encourage, support and listen to all the parents of the ECFE family. We are in this together! YOU GOT THIS!
